Here’s a collection of quotes by Andy Warhol.

“An artist is somebody who produces things that people don’t need to have.” – Andy Warhol

“Art is what you can get away with.” ― Andy Warhol

“I’d asked around 10 or 15 people for suggestions. Finally one lady friend asked the right question, “Well, what do you love most?” That’s how I started painting money.” – Andy Warhol

“Being good in business is the most fascinating kind of art. Making money is art and working is art and good business is the best art.” – Andy Warhol

“Success is when the checks don’t bounce.” – Andy Warhol

“I suppose I have a really loose interpretation of ‘work,’ because I think that just being alive is so much work at something you don’t always want to do. The machinery is always going. Even when you sleep.” – Andy Warhol

“I’m afraid that if you look at a thing long enough, it loses all of its meaning.” ― Andy Warhol

“You have to do stuff that average people don’t understand because those are the only good things.” ― Andy Warhol

“I love Los Angeles, and I love Hollywood. They’re beautiful. Everybody’s plastic, but I love plastic. I want to be plastic.” – Andy Warhol

“Beauty is a sign of intelligence.” ― Andy Warhol

“Sometimes the little times you don’t think are anything while they’re happening turn out to be what marks a whole period of your life.” ― Andy Warhol

“I think having land and not ruining it is the most beautiful art that anybody could ever want to own.” – Andy Warhol

“It does not matter how slowly you go so long as you do not stop.” ― Andy Warhol

“They always say time changes things, but you actually have to change them yourself.” – Andy Warhol

“When people are ready to, they change. They never do it before then, and sometimes they die before they get around to it. You can’t make them change if they don’t want to, just like when they do want to, you can’t stop them.” ― Andy Warhol

“And your own life while it’s happening to you never has any atmosphere until it’s a memory.” ― Andy Warhol

“A picture means I know where I was every minute. That’s why I take pictures. It’s a visual diary.” ― Andy Warhol

“Empty space is never-wasted space. Wasted space is any space that has art in it.” – Andy Warhol

“When I look at things, I always see the space they occupy. I always want the space to reappear, to make a comeback, because it’s lost space when there’s something in it.” – Andy Warhol

“It’s not what you are that counts, it’s what they think you are.” ― Andy Warhol

“Don’t pay any attention to what they write about you. Just measure it in inches.” – Andy Warhol

“The interviewer should just tell me the words he wants me to say and I’ll repeat them after him. I think that would be so great because I’m so empty I just can’t think of anything to say.” – Andy Warhol

“It’s the movies that have really been running things in America ever since they were invented. They show you what to do, how to do it, when to do it, how to feel about it, and how to look how you feel about it.” – Andy Warhol

“In the future, everyone will be famous for 15 minutes.” – Andy Warhol

“Publicity is like eating peanuts. Once you start you can’t stop.” – Andy Warhol

“Pop art is for everyone.” – Andy Warhol

“The pop artists did images that anybody walking down Broadway could recognize in a split second — comics, picnic tables, men’s trousers, celebrities, shower curtains, refrigerators, Coke bottles. All the great modern things that the Abstract Expressionists tried not to notice at all.” –
Andy Warhol

“I am a deeply superficial person.” – Andy Warhol
